Thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns. Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan) who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future.

Mortal Engines is adapted from the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve and directed by Oscar-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong). Joining him are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies three-time Academy Award-winning filmmakers Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who have penned the screenplay.

On board as producers are Zane Weiner and Amanda Walker, both from The Hobbit trilogy and Deborah Forte (Goosebumps). Ken Kamins (The Hobbit trilogy) joins Boyens as executive producer. Universal will distribute the film worldwide.

The impressive cast also includes Hugo Weaving, Stephen Lang and Frankie Adams (that annoying Kiwi Martian Marine from The Expanse).
